The Coronation Pro Rodeo will be held on Friday, July 5th – Saturday, July 6th, 2019 in Coronation, Alberta. This Coronation rodeo is held at Coronation Rodeo Grounds.
The coronation was named in honor of the coronation of King George V. The Town was registered as a Village on December 16, 1911, and by April 29, 1912, was declared a Town. Some of the original buildings from Coronation’s early years remain, but fires over the years have taken their toll on some of the historical sites.
Coronation has had its share of champions. The Coronation Cadet Corps brought home many trophies for excellence, especially marksmanship. There has been more than one brome grass champion, as well as various cattle breeders showing championship stock, helping to put Coronation on the map.
